Oulipost #23: Inventory

First, I listed words by parts of speech from the article "Sheikha Moza tours Japan's Science City" in today's Gulf Times. I listed a proper noun on every other line and then added words in each following in this order: article, adjective, noun, preposition, pronoun, verb, adverb, conjunction. I listed words until I ran out of words. I took a few words out of turn, and tucked in the odd leftover words where I thought they best completed a more linguistically complete thought, if that is possible.
